At http://www.avoiceformen.com is an excellent article by Jon Gunnarsson called, “The Pinnacle Of Male Disposability” that highlights how men throughout history have always been considered expendable by politicians, and even the people they protect. An example is the White Feathers, a group of upper-class British women during WWI who would hand out white feathers to any man not in uniform as a sign of cowardice to shame them into enlisting. This included boys as young as 15 who lied about their age so they could enlist and die.

I guess if we had drafted women then there would have been a different reaction.
(I’m very much against using women i this fashion. Or, men for that matter.)
If we were Israel where there is no safe “rear”, or the enemy was landing on the coast. (Unless they had quarters to play the games.)
I have moved completely from my youth when I believe everything our Gooferment said.
Gulf of Tolkin changed that. Then I started to really study my history.
Somewhere along the way, for anyone who cares, I became a miniarchist almost an anarchist.
Wish I could say I was finished in my political maturaton.
I’m going to be more of a loon as I get I get older.
I could cry over the youngsters and their stupidity.
